Let me tell you, their answers totally surprised me! Isn’t it fun to ask a question and then be surprised by the answer?
The biggest realization for me was just how small their world is. When I asked, “Where is somewhere you want to go this year?” I was imagining they would answer Washington D.C., California, or England. But nope, it was a local park, the mall, and Chick-fil-A. All of which we have been to more than once this year. Wow.
Also of note before you read is that Gracie rather got stuck in a rut. Just so there’s no confusing that she’s the most spiritual three-year-old in the world or anything.
So here, for those interested, are my kids answers to their New Year’s Day questions.
